Tweaking A Pattern

I decided to try something different with the Swiffer cover and eliminated the tabs and buttons. This one went very quickly and I’m pleased with the result.

I did nine repeats instead of seven and added three rows of garter stitch before binding off. I made ties of twisted yarn and just snugged cover up over the Swiffer and I’m good to go.

Now that I’ve perfected my pattern adjustments I’ll go back to knitting dishcloths for a couple of days and then make a couple of these to go with the dishcloths I’m making for Audrey’s kitchen.

Guess I needed a break from knitting socks but I’ve still got a lot of sock knitting to do. Knitting is my go-to for when I’m not feeling all that great. The detox is going well but I’m definitely feeling some fatigue and not up to much around the house. I need to do a couple of loads of laundry so I don’t get behind but I can manage that with no problems. I don’t need much in the way of groceries and Brad can pick those up for me later.

I would like to read a couple of more chapters in “American Marxism” and then decide what to read when I finish it. I’ve got several good books downloaded on my Kindle that I haven’t read and several that I will read again. I think I’m in the mood for another dose of Mitch Rapp…

I am a Native Texan, Wife, Mother, Grandmother, Great-Grandmother, Catholic Convert residing in rural North East Texas since 1975 when I married my husband and this small town girl became a country girl. I was taught to knit at the age of ten and discovered the writings of Elizabeth Zimmerman shortly after I married. I learned to ‘unvent’ things as I went along, to create my own patterns and generally have a blast with yarn and needles. In the mid 1980’s I explored the idea of spinning my own yarn and eventually got interested in weaving on a floor loom. I have three spinning wheels and a 24″ four-shaft Herald floor loom that I purchased from a friend in the 1990’s. I also enjoy sewing, tatting and making rosaries. I have a work room that contains my fiber, yarn, floor loom, sewing machines, serger and rosary making supplies. I have a spinning corner in a bedroom next to my work room, both with north windows looking toward the creek.
